How long have you been avoiding what scares you? Has hiding from the fear ever made it go away? Can you see how avoiding what scares you actually works against you by feeding the fear? The time to weaken your fear and strengthen your fearlessness is now.
Fear is momentary; regrets are forever. The reality is that fears that paralyze us today will be long forgotten tomorrow, and we'll be left with the after-effects of opting for safety -- life unexperienced, progress unmade, a truckful of regret.
In 2012, resolve to forge ahead a path of fearlessness. Realize that by using your own inner resources, you will not only have the strength to cope with the worst, but the ingenuity to create the best, in your future.
